Green Alder

Ginkgo is medium sized deciduous tree with beautifully fan shaped leaves which develop a clear yellow fall color. Its form is pyramidal, broadening with age and becoming picturesque.

Green Alder is a cold hardy, native shrub. It is often planted on infertile sites so it can fix nitrogen from the air and improve the soil quality.

Green Alder is known for its smooth grey bark and attractive shiny green leaves; it is commonly used in reclamation.
